Ford on Tuesday announced the new Carbon Series model for the 2019 GT supercar.

"The Ford GT Carbon Series will stand out on the road with its striking, carbon-fibre-rich design and on the track with its athleticism".

Other lightweight innovations include the use of titanium for the exhaust and lug nuts as well as polycarbonate for the engine cover and rear hatch.

Therefore, though it retains its air conditioning and infotainment systems, the burdensome weight of the cupholders and driver's side storage bin has finally been removed from the 650hp machine, freeing it to at last realise its full potential. A replacement for the Competition Series model, the Carbon Series cuts 39 pounds from the race-inspired coupe while also adding aesthetic changes. The Ford GT Carbon Series is not meant to be a track-only auto, however, as creature comforts such as air conditioning, a radio, and the Sync 3 infotainment system remain to make this latest special-edition GT a livable everyday commuter. An optional accent package (silver, red, orange or blue) draws a thin stripe down the middle of that stripe, with matching accent-colored exterior mirrors. The cabin comes standard with silver stitching on the steering wheel and seats, as well as anodised paddle shifters.

Inside, the vehicle sports a Carbon Series badge on the instrument panel, a unique seat pattern, silver stitching on the seats and steering wheel, clear anodized paddle shifters, and matte carbon fiber for the sills, air register pods, and center console. "So we developed the Carbon Series to satisfy that need while providing a distinct look", said Lance Mosley, marketing manager, Ford Performance. Ford will only be building one of its special GT models a week, meaning the Carbon Series will remain an extremely rare version of an already very limited supercar.

Applications for those hoping to buy a Ford GT will reopen on November 8 and run for 30 days.
